Brigham: Voyageur (129) (Rock Maple Inserts) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-491-6737
A plump and poised rendition of the bent Apple, Brigham's "29" poises a rotund bowl at the end of a sleekly tapering shank and stem combination. Said bowl is wonderfully rounded and takes on a striking rearward cant as it rests atop its curvaceous heel, its mid-set waistline marking an arced taper to the rim, the bulb-like build offering a comfortable feel in hand. Dressed in the craggy rustication of the Voyageur series, this piece offers plenty of rich texture for the fingers to appreciate.
Like all of Brigham's lineup, this pipe also comes complete with the marque's signature Rock Maple Inserts. A rock maple dowel is drilled with a 3.5mm airway and pressure-fitted with a special metal cap that allows it to fit securely within the pipe while also being easily removable. The dowel is able to take the smoke from the bowl and pass it through the shank and a large section of the stem, removing moisture and unpleasant flavors that develop during the smoking process. No chemicals or adhesives are used to manufacture the rock maple inserts, ensuring it remains flavor-neutral. And because of the drilling, a rock maple insert is able to pass a pipe cleaner, even while the pipe is still assembled. The insert's design also helps prevent moisture from traveling back into the bowl or up the stem, helping to reduce pipe gurgle in the process.-John McElheny
